Does anything make me more furious than government funding of private religious schools. Not a little bit of funding, a huge amount, while government schools have paint peeling off their walls and green playing fields are only a dream. The photo does not come close to illustrating the money that was spent.
Melbourne Church of England Grammar School has buried their huge project under grass so none of the working class can see what they have done with the taxpayers money. Actually, it is not government money for this project. A blog mate clued me up about this. School fee are not tax deductible, but contributions to a building fund for schools can be. The government funding goes towards running costs. Parents are no doubt encouraged to contribute to the building fund ahead of school fees. Don't worry about the school fees. Just contribute to the building fund.
How a Labor Government can continue to give taxpayers money to these religious institutions and their schools astonishes me.
How a Labor Government can continue to give taxpayers money to the privileged elite astonishes me.
